Pulaski Tech's Big Rock Reading series kicks off Tuesday, Sept. 18, with poet and singer/songwriter Marck L. Beggs, who will read his poetry and sing beginning at 6 p.m. in the RJ Wills Lecture Hall, located on the second floor of the Campus Center.
Beggs has written three books of poetry and is a member of the folk-rock duo, Bohemian Sauce. The evening will conclude with a question-and-answer with the author and a book signing.
Beggs' visit is the first of three events in the Big Rock Reading Series, which brings writers from central Arkansas and beyond to the college.
All events are free and open to the public.
On Oct. 25 at 6 p.m., novelist Padma Viswanathan will discuss her debut novel The Toss of a Lemon as well as read from and discuss newer work. Her writing covers such diverse topics as the culture of India and Indian immigrants in the West, the consequences of terrorism, and the lives of those who skirt the law.
The reading series concludes Nov. 9 at 10 a.m. with J. Camp Brown, a poet, and Kathleen Heil, a fiction writer and translator. Both Brown and Heil are attending the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville's Programs in Creative Writing and Translation.
